Nominate a real hero

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- KNDU is teaming up with the Benton Franklin Red Cross once again to recognize local heroes who commit extraordinary acts.

But the program needs your nominations for real heroes that you know.

They've extended the deadline to December 15th to include more people in the selection process.

The Red Cross says the humanitarian spirit is all around us and we should show our appreciation.

"Among us there are people that go way beyond the call of duty. They put aside their own security and safety and reached out to help another person," said Jeanne Jelke, Benton-Franklin Red Cross.

If you want to nominate someone, you can fill out a nomination form online.

Proceeds from the Real Heroes Breakfast 2013 will go toward supporting local Red Cross services.
